Pineapple and Mango Salsa




Merry Christmas. Today I'm going to share a simple recipe that goes well with fish, pork or chicken with a Cuban or tropical accent. As you can tell from the picture, this salsa is very colorful and makes a great relish or chutney side dish. Click on the picture for a full size high resolution shot of that tropical goodness. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New year.

Pineapple & Mango Salsa


1/2 cup finely diced pineapple (use grilled or smoked if possible)
1/2 cup finely diced mango
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
2 small finely diced tomatoes (de seeded)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice of half lemon
2 tbsp EVOO

If you can, grill or smoke the pineapple for this salsa first. It will make this salsa pop even more. Combine the first 5 ingredients and then toss. Drizzle with olive oil and squeeze in lemon juice and toss. Let sit 30 minutes before serving, toss right before serving.

This salsa goes great with fish and pork. For those that like sweet and hot, you can make this a warmer dish by finely dicing a medium heat pepper or two. I prefer it just like this myself.
